Nicely laid out, with photographs you can enlarge, for the price good value.
My only neg comment is how can you get quick reference when out in the field,
for example, it would be be useful to have a search facility for colours etc.
Something the developers could include, for people who don't know butterfly names
Recommended for anyone who has an interest in these beautifull creatures.

I've only recently downloaded this App, so I haven't had a chance to use it a lot. The images are clear and the details of each specie are sufficient but not overlong.
If I have a complaint it is that there is no way to search by description. There is a search facility but it only allows search by name or Latin name, which presupposes some knowledge of the insect in the first place. It is possible to use a descriptor such as "White" or "Small", etc which then selects butterflies with those words in their name, but this will not always work. So for example if I came across a "Dingy Skipper" and didn't know its name I wouldn't be able to successfully search for it, unless I searched for "dingy" or "skipper", which is unlikely.
However with that said the list is not enormous and it takes a reasonably short time to run through the images and for the extremely reasonable price of 69p (date of purchase July 2014) it is churlish to complain too much.

A responsive well laid out app which enables the user to quickly find very good photographs and information. An excellent companion to have with you in your garden or on a walk to be able to quickly identify a butterfly.

An excellent ap for anyone with a passing interest in butterflies of UK.Obviously not a replacement for a more complete and detailed reference book but a handy quick reference when you may be out without anything of this nature.

Good little app for the price. Has the main species likely to be encountered and sufficient notes to help in identification. May not be ideal if a user has absolutely no previous experience of identifying these insects, but at this price well worth buying.

It took quite a few attempts for it to successfully download onto my kindle fire but now that it has done there are no problems with it. It's a useful app to use for identification when you don't have a field guide handy but is a long way off replacing the field guide. The photographs of butterflies or lovely so if you have an interest in them it is worth downloading and can provide a lot of fun.

lovely pictures, bright and informative, only should be more UK centric. .although invaluable if you travel to Europe a lot.Lovely to look at on a rainy day in winter,when you're buying "butterfly friendly/attracting" seeds,& dreaming of what you might attract into your garden next summer
